12 Tips for Great Multigenerational Family Vacations

Multigenerational family vacations are growing increasingly popular, but planning for these events can be stressful. Please join us in welcoming Nancy Schretter from the Family Travel Network to The Window Seat.  She shares twelve family travel tips that can help make your next multigenerational family vacation the best ever.

Famous for the record high temperatures, Death Valley is not only the hottest place in North America, it’s also the lowest and driest.
